One of a Kind piece
Superb King's Manassa (Colorado) set in sterling silver bracelet.
This bracelet shows several processes of Native silversmithing: The setting of this bracelet is made with the Tufa Cast traditional technique and pieces of different shapes (spirals, stars, cross and hands) are soldered on the outside, while the inside is hand-stamped of Native patterns.
Tufa Cast is one of the oldest process used by the Navajos:
The artist takes a mold made of volcanic stone (tufa) and divises it in two parts. In the first part, he carves a design of his choice, melts silver in, and tightly covers it with the second part of the mold. Once the silver is hard, the mold eventually breaks, making this piece a unique item. This technique creates a jewel of traditionnal rough aspect on which we can clearly see the beautiful lumps of tufa stone.
